WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long Applauds Hardy Brothers’ TNA Return

One big thing: Matt and Jeff Hardy make a triumphant return to TNA Wrestling

The Hardy brothers, Matt and Jeff, have made their way back to TNA Wrestling after their AEW contracts expired. TNA has warmly welcomed them, even allowing Matt to revive his popular Hardy Compound Universe.

Why it matters:

• The Hardys’ return to TNA marks a significant shift in the wrestling landscape.
• It demonstrates TNA’s commitment to utilizing established talent and nostalgia to boost their brand.
• The move could potentially impact the tag team divisions across multiple promotions.

What they’re saying:

WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long expressed his excitement for the Hardys on “Sportskeeda WrestleBinge”:

• “Good for them, Jeff and Matt, they’ve worked real hard together and had trials and tribulations but they overcome such a lot man and they’re doing so great now and I’m so proud of both of them.”
• Long praised Matt’s growth as a “family man” and hoped for a proper send-off for Jeff if he decides to retire.

Behind the scenes:

• Matt’s AEW contract expired in March, with Jeff following shortly after.
• The brothers were sidelined in AEW following Jeff’s DWI arrest and subsequent rehab stint.
• Matt recently revealed feeling that AEW had only signed Jeff as a favor to him.
• TNA reportedly reached out to the Hardys immediately upon their free agency.

The big picture:

While the Hardys are working with TNA, they are not exclusive to the promotion and remain free agents. This arrangement comes at an interesting time, considering TNA’s recent cross-overs with WWE programming.

What’s next:

Fans can expect to see more of the Hardy Compound Universe and potentially new tag team matchups in TNA. The brothers’ free agent status also leaves the door open for appearances in other promotions.
